As opposed to single-objective optimization, in multiobjective optimization there is no single best solution.

It is thus common to directly or indirectly search for a set of Pareto efficient solutions Pareto front and apply set-oriented search procedures for this. Besides, there is an alternative approach, which is the construction of ranking and scoring methods that aggregate objectives, which typically yields a particular mmulticriteria solution on the Pareto front.

Multicriteria Optimization and Decision Analysis

Moreover, ehrgotr multicriteria decision analysis, the assessment of multivariate data and trade-offs is discussed, and tools that can supporting human decision makers in complex environments. In the first part we will discuss foundations of the field, including mathematical treatment of partial orders, ehegott, and domination, as well as optimality definitions that rests on these.


We will also discuss the geometry of Pareto optimal sets and how ranking methods can be designed in order to express the preferences of a user.

The second part of the course focuses on algorithmic aspects. We will review fundamental algorithms for optimizxtion subset selection, as well as deterministic and stochastic methods for approximating or finding the Pareto front. A particular focus will be on hypervolume-oriented methods which recast the problem of finding all Pareto efficient solutions as a problem of finding sets as a single objective optimization problem on the space of sets.

Accuracy, Efficiency, Reliability, and User-friendliness are guiding criteria in the design of multiobjective optimization algorithms.

The theory of these algorithms is still under development and we will discuss very recent breakthrough results and major open problems in this field. Michael Emmerich will teach the part on multiobjective optimization, and the part on multicriteria decision analysis will be teached by Dr.
